    Have your tickets been checked on your journey?

    Scotrail return trip into Edinburgh yesterday and ticket was checked on the way back. No checks at Edinburgh either direction. Did hear the guard refuse to sell a railcard discounted ticket to someone onboard though - never had that before. (Not a criticism of him though - that's the rules and...

    Local Facebook Groups

    There's a couple in the area around me. One's private and I've never got round to requesting to join it. I occasionally have a read of the other one though, but it mostly seems to be people complaining about issues such as "place X is awful for dog poo - never seen anywhere like it". In reality...

    I was a bit lonely so I bought some shares. It’s nice to have a bit of company.

    UEFA EURO 2020

    Decent team that definitely. Very fair based on the performances I saw. (Maguire almost deserves his inclusion for his penalty alone :D)

    A similar service was tried some time around 2014 by Prentice Coaches between Haddington and Wallyford station (X1 I believe it was numbered) and was scheduled for three return peak time journeys each weekday. I can't find anything online, but I seem to recall it was withdrawn fairly soon after...

    Space Tourism

    I do think it's a ludicrous thing to be doing in this day and age when we claim to be trying to fight climate change

    TRIVIA: Farthest distance travelled avoiding the big 4 operators

    Or also Biggar (via Galashiels and Peebles). From Biggar you can then take Stuart's Coaches to Lanark and then onto Glasgow.

    UEFA EURO 2020

    Indeed, as would I. I think the phrase that gets me is the "Does anyone care?" - em yes! You're a British account not English. I've emboldened the crucial part to that - BBC Scotland. Would that be the default broadcast down south? I think Michael Stewart summed it up perfectly at the weekend...

    UEFA EURO 2020

    In reference to what I posted last night, below is an example of the "baggage" I can't stand. https://mobile.twitter.com/BBCSport/status/1413075387203137539 (A video clip of the challenge also features) The BBC Sport Twitter account really should be neutral, but instead we get an English bias...

    How often do you buy a newspaper?

    I buy the local weekly courier. I like to keep up to date with what's happening locally and the newspapers website is awful, so £1.05 a week isn't too bad a price to pay to be able to do that. Yes I could find it elsewhere online, but I'd be at it for ages everyday trying to keep up, so one...

    UEFA EURO 2020

    My personal Twitter feed seems filled with a lot of English hatred but personally I’ll say congratulations to England. This is the best England team I remember and they all seem decent and reasonable as well - just a questionable penalty decision! :) Now I just need to disconnect myself from...

    RMT ScotRail conductors - Strike action regarding overtime payments

    What annoys me the most about this is that replacement buses are running to hospitals - are the rest of us passengers irrelevant?

    Independent Operators in the Lothians

    To be honest 110 on its own probably could have been fine. The route is just a (fairly lengthy) extension to the current 110 between Tranent and Elphinstone.

    England set to drop facemasks and social distancing on July 19

    I've got a journey booked from Edinburgh to Carlisle in August. If this proposal happens, it seems to me that for the last few minutes of my journey I could not have to wear a face covering - purely because I happened to have crossed the border. Surely even the most pro-maskers can see there is...

    Independent Operators in the Lothians

    Interesting move. I think that might do alright actually by going via the A1. It gives Prestonpans, as well as Tranent and Wallyford, a faster link via the A1 instead of having to go through Musselburgh.
